Pelvic Pain

What should I know about pelvic pain?

Pelvic pain includes pain that originates anywhere in your pelvic region. While the pain often arises from a gynecologic problem, it can also be due to your muscles, supporting tissues, your bladder, and other organs or structures in your pelvis.

You may experience pelvic pain that comes and goes or causes a constant ache. It may feel like a sharp pain or more like pressure than pain. You don’t need to try and figure out whether the pain is serious. Just remember that any type of pain or uncomfortable feeling is your body’s way of telling you something isn’t right, and schedule an appointment at Bella Women’s Care.

What gynecologic conditions might cause my pelvic pain?

The team at Bella Women’s Care diagnoses and treats many different conditions that cause pelvic pain. Some of the most common include:

Endometriosis

Endometriosis occurs when tissues that line the inside of your uterus start to grow outside the uterus. You may develop patches of endometriosis on your ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer uterine wall, bladder, or other structures in your pelvic area. Endometriosis causes inflammation and scarring that leads to pelvic pain.

Uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths in the muscular wall of your uterus. When fibroids become too large, they cause pressure and pain.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

This is an infection that occurs when bacteria from your vagina spread to your uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries. Its primary symptoms are lower abdominal and pelvic pain.

Ovarian cysts

Cysts that develop in your ovaries can cause ongoing pain when they get too large, but if they rupture, you’ll feel sudden, severe pelvic pain.

How is pelvic pain treated?

The first step is to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your pelvic pain. After a pelvic exam, blood tests, and possibly diagnostic imaging, such as ultrasound, your Bella Women's Care provider develops a customized treatment plan based on your diagnosis.

Your treatment could include pain-relieving medications, antibiotics to treat an infection, or hormone-containing medications. If your symptoms are severe and you have fibroids or endometriosis, your doctor may recommend minimally invasive surgery to remove the growths.
